LYMINGTON'S Nick Thompson has not made a decision over whether to attempt to qualify for Tokyo 2020.

The 30-year-old finished sixth overall in the laser class in his debut Olympics on Tuesday having experienced a mixed regatta.

But with events in Rio now behind him, the two-time world champion admits he is yet to decide whether to continue to pursue his Olympic title dream.

Thompson said: “Who knows if I will campaign for Tokyo? It's a long cycle but it’s still something that burns inside me so we'll see.

“The Olympics is amazing. It's everything everyone always said it was going to be – it's the greatest show on earth.

"Just being here representing my country is an incredibly proud moment. It's something I've always wanted to do and it means a lot to me.”

Thompson added: “I came here with bigger expectations, I was certainly looking to medal and fight for the win but I never really got into the regatta.

“I always knew if I was going to have a chance of winning I was going to have to be 100 per cent and I just never got into a rhythm.

“The nature of our class is that the person who turns up and is on fire that week is going to come out on top."
